Luis Martinez likes his Philly cheese steak sandwiches with American cheese, onions and ketchup. The Orlando, Florida resident says that’s the way he’s always had them. So when an employee at a Subway restaurant told him there was no ketchup in the store, Martinez flipped his lid.
Police say he refused to make good on the purchase, and when a customer in line reportedly offered to buy the grub instead, Martinez told him where to go. That’s when Lawrence Ordone had seen enough.
“I flew off the handle,” said Ordone.
Police say the sandwich artist pushed a chair and said “Let’s go, fight me like a man.” They say he then blocked the exit so no one could leave, and threatened to kill Martinez.
Subway wasted no time in firing Ordone, but he defends his condiment confrontation.
“There’s ketchup three aisles down. You can go buy your own ketchup, and I promise to God, you can put as much as you want on it and nobody’s going to say nothing.”
